If this is too far off the correct path I will understand if it is deleted.

I am in the market for a GPS unit for my car.

Would like Bluetooth for sure and Voice Recognition if possible.

The rest all seems pretty much the same to me.... big screen would be nice...
and having a voice tell you when to turn etc...

Do any of you have any experience with any GPS units that could help guide my choice....

Pros Cons ... features I should have etc..

Lost no more...
I've got a Nuvi...
A female Australian voice patiently guides me to my selected destination...
She NEVER gets annoyed when I fail to follow her timely and appropriate instructions... go figure!?
I opt for an independent BlueTooth ear piece for my hands-free cell phone calls...
Basic NUVI units are quite reasonable...
An "add-on" after market antenna enhances signal reception and satellite capture...
Gone in a flash...
Attractive "smash and grab" bait for shiftless near-do-wells makes removal from clear view something to embrace and seriously consider...
Amazing technology...
Once you go GPS, there's NO going back...
NO REGRETS!

Narrowing in on the Garmin 765T

Seems to have all I want...and gets good reviews....

Backing off the Voice Recognition feature.....doesnt seem to work
very well....

Thanks for the input.....will keep on researching...dont need it immediately so
that means I wont buy impulsively..

Have a great Holiday

I have a Nuvi as well. Resisted getting a GPS for the car until I started frequently driving to NYC for work. Great device and easy to use...can't imagine not having it now. A key feature is the traffic monitoring - free on the Nuvi i bought. Samantha takes me where I want to go!
